is out there fending and going after and taking care of the junk insurance industry. obama care is about making the market better. getting rid of junk insurance. there are a lot of americans in the private market that don't have very good insurance. and it doesn't cover very much. and when they get sick, the cost goes up for all of us. this is about reform. it's not about appeasing people when they get upset, when they get a cancellation notice in the mail saying you got lousy insurance. it doesn't meet the standards. go to the federal market. do we need like a health care summit so we can get all the good guys around the table to figure out what the hell to say to the camera? president clinton, drop me an e-mail. tell me what good that interview did when you said that there are three things wrong with obama care. there are people out there who were sitting on every word, wondering who do i believe. do i believe the lines of misinformation? well, is ed lying to me, or what's going on? is there really a junk insurance industry out there? absolutely, there is. and the whole point of this i

>>> hello, everyone. it's 5:00 in new york city and this is the five. president obama just wrapped up an interview that we'll tell you about in a hospital. when the president started to realize the rollout would be a big problem, he tried to convince americans that we would be better off under his plan. he tried to find success stories like this. >> i recently received a letter from a woman named jessica sanford in washington state. here's what she wrote. i am a single mom. no child support. self-employed. and i haven't had insurance for 15 years because it's too expensive. i was crying the other day when i signed up, so much stress lifted. >> but that single mom's excitement quickly turned to disappointment. jessica has learned the affordable care act won't be affordable for her after all. >> it was a huge disappointment and especially since i had -- my story had been shared by the president, i felt like -- i just felt really embarrassed that he had quoted my story and then come to find that the washington health plan finder, the website here in our state, had grossly m miscalcula

it was news that critics like jack welsh immediately questioned. and which president obama repeatedly touted on the campaign trail in the final stretch before election day, watch. >> this morning, we found out the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million jobs during the past two years. >> on friday we found out the unemployment rate has fallen from the height of 10% down to 7.8%, the lowest since i took office. >> we created 5 million jobs, gone from 800,000 jobs a month being lost. and we are making progress. >> the census bureau has now released a statement saying it is taking these allegations seriously. joining me tonight, utah congressman, a republican and demanding answers and promising a full investigation. congressman, good to see you, so the essence now of the investigation will be what? >> well, we want to know what the census bureau knew, because there are allegations based on this article that we say. and it is just an initial article that there we
on the left there. he is the guy who put out my nominee for the single greatest obama care press release title of all time. obama care will mandate free sex changes. really? incidentally, also when that george reeker's riling boy came out in the miami news times, he is the one that defended george reeker saying that clearly this was a setup. somebody planted the hooker there. i don't believe the massager thing for a minute. but here's marco rubio doing -- public food, that erected over the past 48 hours in wyoming and in the "new york times," and on facebook and in the pr shop hired by the family so they could have their family change in public. that delightful fact was sparked by these ads being run against liz cheney in wyoming as she tried to mount her senate campaign there -- back to the future, to have mike huckabee's daughter, running attack ads against a candidate who has a gay sister that says see this shows you're not anti-gay enough. but that ad was effective enough in wyoming, it got liz champion to basically change her stated public opinion now. to now say she's against gay marriag
>>> it's a big day in america. we know now why the obama administration has refused for so long to tell the public how many americans have signed up for obama care. hhs secretary kathleen sebelius confirming just a short time ago that the initial enrollment numbers are woefully short of the administration's target and far below even their lowered expectations. i'm lou dobbs. >>> good evening, everybody. the number is 106,000. that's how many americans have enrolled in health care plans in the state and federal exchanges through the first month of obama care, just a fifth of what administration officials had projected before the launch of healthcare.gov and the opening of the exchanges. to make matters worse, the federal exchanges operating in 36 states accounted for only 27,000 of those successful enrollments. 80,000 originated in the state-run insurance exchanges. on a conference call this afternoon, secretary sebelius revealed the embarrassingly low number, but then opened herself and the administration up to outright ridicule by calling those numbers consistent with what mass
out to a new republican party. >> it was amazing. there was even a republican who voted for obama who stood up proudly and said that. >> that doesn't happen so much. used to say how many republicans, how many democrats. like in 2009, shield say and how many republicans who voted for obama. and there would be like ten people applauding, be really proud of themselves for being transformative and having the courage to cross party lines and make a difference. that doesn't happen so much anymore. there was one last night, though. >> that's my neighborhood and one your year when my kids were young, saddam hussein and georg bush. saddam got more candy. >> honestly, i don't know how you do this. the night continued over at the may flower with politico, one of their cocktails. and i cannot believe they were in the balconies and you had a great audience. >> do you know what they were asking, where is sam stein not here. >> it will never end. >> but there were a lot of good questions. and the most interesting thing, and i think the rope these crowds are so big is that the timing for the book is
as president obama was claiming that he was sincere but mistaken in his repeated promises that if you liked your health care plan you could keep it under obama care, top attorneys in his justice department were telling ale federal court something very different. first, here is the president last week. >> there is no doubt that the way i put that forward unequivocally ended up not being accurate. it was not because of my intention not to deliver on that commitment and that promise. we put a grandfather clause into the law but it was insufficient. >> got that? he intended to deliver on his promise with the grandfather clause, but the clause proved insufficient. he stressed that the only people affected by the broken promise were those on the small 5% of the public individual market. not on the employer-sponsored or group health care plan. as it turns out, oas the president offered those excuses to you his administration was arguing something different to a federal court saying, i quote, we'll put up the graphic in a moment. in a moment. the control room says it has a misspelling so we'll fix
>>> mitt romney disavows obama care. is it the same health care plan the former governor sold to massachusetts? i will talk to the architect of both plans in minutes. >>> the president's meeting with the leader of iraq. exactly what kind of military help is that country seeking from the u.s., and will it happen? >>> in office politics, down to its last days? i talked to cnbc's carl quintanilla about the problems with blackberry. >>> and how much money could this work of art fetch? it's in today's list of number ones. >>> hello, everyone. it's high noon here in the east, 9:00 a.m. out west. welcome to "weekends with alex witt." he's back with a whole lot to say. mitt romney on today's "meet the press," talking about the comparisons between romney care in massachusetts and obama care. >> and perhaps the most important lesson the president failed to learn was you have to tell the american people the truth. what when he told the american people you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period, he said that time and again, he wasn't telling the truth. i
president obama kept his health care promise, that obama care is working while apologizing for the fact that it doesn't. i'm lou dobbs. >>> good evening, everybody. hhs secretary kathleen sebelius today testified before the house energy and commerce committee. on the disastrous obama carrollout. sebelius took responsibility for the website failure while making the outrageous claim that the website has actually never crashed. >> we were anxious to get the website up and running and functional, which we clearly have failed to do to date, although i would suggest the website has never crashed, it is functional but at a very slow speed and very low reliability and has continued to function. >> and at the very moment that sebelius made that statement, the healthcare.gov system was down. and it stayed down for the duration of the hearing. sebelius did offer an apology, and she told the committee to hold her accountable for the obama care failure. while insisting that the president did not lie when he repeatedly told americans they could keep their health care insurance if they liked it. but w
said. it has shown from the beginning that president obama doesn't deserve the decency accorded other american presidents. his enemies have called him an illegal immigrant, a street corner con artist, a fraud, a march yourian candidate brought to this country to undermine all we stand for. well, now dick cheney comes right out and calls him a liar when a right wing back bencher did that's four years ago he was called out for rebuke even by his own party. now what was condemned as historic bad behavior comes snarling out of dick cheney's mouth and nobody says to shut up. we can argue as we do here about the problems implementing the affordable care act. but is this, calling the president a liar, the new language of american politics? or is it a language specially treated for the country's first african-american president? is this president of a lower caste than those elected to the office before. or those on the right even believe he is the legitimate president of the united states. or someone like him could be. at least we know the top republican in the country refuses to condemn the
matthews out in seattle. let me start with the job at hand. if you're president obama and want his presidency to proceed, what's the best way to gain control? get back on the side of americans that want to make life better with a better health care plan, a growing economy with progressive values. you focus on those who want those things opposed to those who like things the way they have been. you get people to choose not on a day to day but the big differences that separate obama from his right wing critics. and you build a team to sell it just as you must build a better team to govern this country starting with the execution of the affordable care act which puts accountability and transparency first. howard fineman is director for t"the huffington post" media group and david corn from mother jones. howard, it's great to have you on and an important question. talk about the big picture president obama has been able to speak to the american people and tell a story. explain where we're headed and where we'd like to go and what we're up against and who we're up against. how does he do
our work cut out for us. we need to send barack obama back to chicago. i would like to send him back to kenya. [ applause ] >> that was at a north texas tea party event about two months before mitt romney lost the presidential election and of course it was long after president obama had produced his birth certificate showing that unlike either raphael cruz, sr., or junior, he was actually born in the united states. joining me now are msnbc political analyst steve schmidt, senior adviser on the mccain '08 campaign and joy reid, nbc contributor. this latest video about him wanting to send president obama as he puts it back to kenya was pulled out today. it's been around. they highlighted it. and then the senator put out a statement saying he doesn't -- his father doesn't speak for him. >> it's so precious when the guy whose son was born in canada does birther jokes. that's adorable. it highlights without the media officially there kind of the way conservatives are talking amongst themselves. and that really is the problem. the problem is even with the 47% video, this was mitt romney be
. >> sad, right? >> scrooge is what it is. >> let's keep going. i don't want to do the obama care story. >> we missed you yesterday. it was incredible watching you there. somebody said something about grown men. i said the morning after your team wins, there are no grown men. >> the night your team wins there are no grown men. >> one was, in some ways as fun or more fun than seeing the green monster and into the up field. >> we were throwing balls off the green monster and to the base. >> like children. >> a lot of fun going inside the green monster. speaking of trick or treating, we lived on the upper west side for awhile. then we moved to places undisclosed, then we were chased back into the city because of the hurricane last year and snowstorm the year before. we always did 69th street on upper west side. have you done that before? >> i haven't. >> that is the coolest street. >> there's a couple blocks like that in manhattan. low 70s in lexington where they do it. everybody on the street gets together and they turn the block into an amazing halloween fantasy. >> that's what this is.
, as i said. it has shown from the beginning that president obama doesn't deserve the decency accorded other american presidents. his enemies have called him an illegal immigrant, a street corner con artist, a fraud, a manchurian candidate brought to this country to undermine all we stand for. well, now dick cheney comes right out and calls him a liar when a right wing back bencher did that's four years ago he was called out for rebuke even by his own party. now what was condemned as historic bad behavior comes snarling out of dick cheney's mouth and nobody says to shut up. we can argue as we do here about the problems implementing the affordable care act. but is this, calling the president a liar, the new language of american politics? or is it a language specially treated for the country's first african-american president? is this president of a lower caste than those elected to the office before. or those on the right even believe he is the legitimate president of the united states. or someone like him could be. at least we know the top republican in the country refuses to condemn t
for obama care. >> the wheels are falling off. >> and now a warning signs that were ignored and yes, it was before the website was launched. also on on you take me up. >> a passenger goes beserk and threatens to detonate a bomb as authorities scramble. >> and a good samaritan. how one man can make a difference. i am harris faulkner. will united states and allies do a deal with iran tonight? secretary of state john kery and five other world powers are in geneva trying to prevent iran to from building a nuclear people and we are monitoring the talks that ended a short time ago. there could be meetings going on behind closed doors. it is day four of what was supposed to be two days of talks. there are reports of progress being made but the deputy foreign minister said there will be no deal if they refuse to the right of urainium. as we have reported, our allies in the middle east are skeptical to say the least. israel prime minister netanyahu call any agreement for iran a bad deal for the world. molly has been following the developments all day long from washington. >> reporter: a lot
for accessing obama care. it will happen thu tomorrow. another wrinkle none theless in a pr disaster. >> the failure of the obama health care launch is a disaster. >> making a first impression that the white house did not want. this matters, obama care affects one- sixths of the u.s. economy. not to mention your own economy. why healthcare.gov is going off line again. >> one of the nation's busiest airports is in the seen. >> it is like a dream. it was not real. it was so intense and not normal to hear that. >> the attack like this tests our resolve and who we are and respond. the line of fire and recovery. >> in moments, the now evidence that the killer may have had a specific target in mind. and a city's response in the face of tragedy becomes a point of national pride for all of us and celebrating boston strong. i am harris faulkner. down again. healthcare.gov that is linking americans to health care exchanges will go off line in a few hours from now. the site will be down for an extended fix. something that the website sorely needs. it is plagued since day one. you can count the
implemented what president obama wants to do and there's positive results. >> over the course of the next year or two, you're going to have a very big success for affordable health coverage. >> if you had had a moment with president obama, what would your advice be on how to make it right? >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. hope you had a great weekend. two senators from kentucky, mitch mcconnell, who heads up the republicans in the senate, and rand paul, who wants to be the president of the united states, these two senators have been the biggest obstructers and biggest bad-mouthers of obama care anywhere in the country. but look what's happening in their own backyard. this is the pulse center, and this is where mitch mcconnell and rand paul have never been. they have never been here in frankfurt, kentucky. it's an obscure office complex, it's known as building 12, and it's kind of hard to find. but this is where we were this morning. i wanted to go to kentucky to find out how this is working. president obama last week in a speech in boston, massachusetts, talked
and the failed rollout of obama care to blame. all but one of those democrats running for re-election at the white house today to make certain president obama gets the message. i'm lou dobbs. >>> good evening, everybody. obama care is a failure to this point. the white house has repeatedly lied about how it would affect the american public. and the president's own party is now in something of a panic, 15 of the 16 senate democrats who are trying to keep their seats beyond 2014 at the white house today, demanding improvement in the affordable care act and looking for answers as to why the president suddenly changed his "if you like your health care you can keep it" claim after three very long years. senator mark baggitch of alaska expressed his deep displeasure with the president in no uncertain terms. >> i've made my voice pretty well heard over there. he doesn't return my calls all the time because i'm yelling at him all the time on some of the issues. >> i have heard from him on day one. i have called suggesting improvements on the site. >> he won election in 2008 by just 1
obama care rollout may have hurt democrat terry mcauliffe and his race for governor but not badly enough to spell defeat. he survives a nasty slugfest with tea party republican ken cuccinelli by three percentage points. ooh he just squeaked by. we assembled a full roster of correspondents and analysts to walk us through the results and what they mean to the rest of the country. first up, state of virginia and candy crowley. welcome, candy. so obama care and the government shutdown surely factors in the virginia race but so were women. here is the winner, terry mcauliffe. >> the truth is that this election was never a choice between democrats and republicans. it was a choice about whether virginia would continue the mainstream bipartisan tradition that has served us so well over the last decade, at a time when washington was often broken, just think about what virginia has been able to accomplish when we work together. >> so candy, in the end the tea party took a hit in virginia, but its candidate almost pulled out because of obama care. so how worried should the democrats be despite the
of important issues that have national implications. issues like obama care, med kaed expansion, immigration doesn't happen in america unless it happens in florida. and, of course, voting rights is on the tip of the tongue of every floridan. the 2014 gubernatorial election is here, it is hugely important. former florida governor, charlie crist, right now is the front runner for the democratic nomination. if he gets the go-ahead, he will be taking on republican governor, rick scott. scott, a self-made guy. he loves to tell people that. worth millions. could be the most radical of all republican governors in the bunch. and he's willing to spend up to $100 million to keep his job. scott kicked and screamed every step of the way on obama care. he refused to set up a state exchange. and so far, he has not expanded medicaid, which has hurt a lot of folks. if scott expanded medicaid, it would provide an estimated 1.2 million low-income floridans with life-saving health care. he's as ruthless as they come, folks. on sunday evening, i had an opportunity to sit down with charlie crist about this, and
campaign on anything obama continues its relentless run even today. with protesters out in the streets of washington denying this president's legitimacy. the goal is to erase this president's election and re-election. replacing it with a republican-enforced shutdown. not just on getting health care to the tens of millions lying in emergency rooms today, but on everything on every progressive front. it's not an overstatement to say right now even the very notion of elected self-government is now openly and shamelessly under assault. with the president's enemies now extend is nothing less than expunging the legacy from the history books before it's even written. clarence page is with the chicago tribune. and ron reagan is a former radio talk show host and msnbc contributor. the tea party is waging a water in an effort to nullify the president's existence as an american. tease are some of the highlights from a tea party rally today in washington, d.c. which included activist larry klayman who has accused the president of being a muslim among other strange ideas. take a listen. >> we don't
for a year. president obama has a temporary fix to his health care blunder. oh, but his fix isn't the only fix. this is a look at the house floor. they just gaveled in, actually. they're holding some sort of press conference now. in a few hours around 12:30 eastern the house votes on republican fred upton's plan, it goes two or three steps farther than the president's fix, and it could actually gut obama care. also, later this afternoon, the heads of some of the top insurance companies will come to the white house for a meeting with president obama, but let's go back to mr. obama and his extraordinary mea culpa. >> that's on me. i mean we fumbled the rollout on this health care law. there are a whole bunch of things about it that are working really well, which people didn't notice. >> cnn is covering the health care crisis from all sides, we begin with chief congressional correspondent dana bash on capitol hill. dana, take it away. >> reporter: certainly a lot of democrats here were relieved that president obama gave that mea culpa, said that he was going to fix his broken promise but the
. president obama pressed senators on tuesday to hold off on imposing new sanctions in order to give diplomacy a chance. >>> more developments in the ongoing saga of rob ford. his top staffers officially reporting to the deputy mayor after city council stripped ford of mote of his power and after one highly rated episode, the embattled mayor's tv show, "ford nati nation" has been canceled. according to media reports, the infamous video of ford smoking crack may have been taken approximately a year ago. >>> home owners try to salvage what they can, looters are driving up to homes and trucks and making off with everything they can. police have imposed a curfew from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. >>> a dramatic life-saving rescue in british columbia. two hikers became lost. they had a cell phone and a signal and were able to call for help. the helicopter was able to drop down a 150-foot long line and pull them out. the rescuers say they would probably have never made it through the night. >> wow, look at that. >> look at that. >> they had equipment but they weren't particularly familiar with that terrain
's nuclear program. now word president obama has called benjamin netanyahu. wonder what that phone call was like. >> what was concluded in geneva last night is not a historic agreement. it's a historic mistake. >> strong words from our strongest ally in the middle east. israel wants war, specifically an end to uranium enrichment in iran. one topic not negotiated -- the fate of an american pastor. sitting in an iranian prison because of his christian faith. fox reports on the new outrage among people tirelessly working to bring him home. >>> and disgusting comments from a cable news host, slamming former v.p. nominee sarah palin simply because he does not share her opinions. and apparently no consequences for his hateful words. >> the networks condoning those types of statements because there's been no punishment of the fella who said these words, that's hypocrisy. >> tonight, governor palin responds publicly for the first time. >>> depending on with whom you listen, the tentative deal with iran to halt key parts of its controversial nuclear program is being called either an important fi
. >>> think if you have insurance from your work obama care won't hit you? well, why wouldn't you? >> if your employer provides you health insurance on the job, nobody is talking about messing with that. >> so no problem for workers getting coverage from employers, right? wrong. fox confirming a report revealing the law actually expects 66% of small business plans and 45% of large company plans to get hit by obama care. that could mean up to 93 million americans may get cancellation letters. are you one of them? hi, everyone. i'm brenda buttner. this is "bulls and bears." let's get right to it. here they are. the bulls and bears this week, we have gary b. smith, tracy byrnes, jonas max ferris, john layfield and bernard whitman. welcome to everybody. gary b., another broken promise? >> absolutely, brenda. the only word i can think of that describes this is despicable. one, you know, as you pointed out right at the top, it's not going to be, you know, five million, 10 million people. the number as you pointed out is over 90 million people. that's over a quarter of the population that were, one,
's a a understatement. problems still plaguing the obama website but health care and the internet are working together in the private sector. these doctors posting their prices on personal websites for health services. patients say it works great. so is this proof the private sector does a heck of a lot better job than the government does? hi, everybody. welcome. let's go in focus with john, rich, elizabeth mcdonald, mike, rick, and sabrina schaeffer. so, john, government can't do the health care on the internet but the private sector obviously can. >> of course it can. capitalism in the profit mode are ability turning scarcity into abundance. they're about turning a million dollar computer in the '70s into something that costs a couple hundred dollars today. health care is expensive and scarce today precisely because the government has naively removed the profit motor from the equation. president obama wants to make it universal and in trying to make it universal he's going to make it very hard for the average person to get. >> so, rick, this just proves the fact that the private sector could do the
in alabama that didn't think that president obama was born in the united states. and the tea party rather than again going on the attack and trying to root out rhinos and squishes and everything else, i think they should take heart that ken cuccinelli could have been elected governor over a flawed candidate terry mcauliffe in the state of virginia with his conservative rhetoric if his allies, senator cruz and others, hadn't slammed the door on the government and brought us to almost the brink of default where cuccinelli got wiped out in northern virginia. i don't care mouhow much money had, federal employees weren't going to vote for cuccinelli. >> it's like rodney dangerfield. not a lot of credit coming from the right to the governor of new jersey for his huge win up there carrying all the different economic groups and winning by 60%. on the other hand out there rooting for cuccinelli who lost. >> right. i think what you have now is a divide in the party between those who want to elevate chris christie in that main line wing of the party. and because they see him as somebody who has now
